5 Facts About Nanny Holiday Bonuses

Holiday bonuses are customary within the nanny industry with parents giving their nanny with a yearend or holiday bonus.

In fact, many nanny employers factor the holiday bonus into their childcare budget and include reference to it in their written work agreement with their nanny.

    If you are considering offering your nanny a holiday bonus, here are 5 things you need to know:

  • Traditionally speaking, nannies receive a holiday bonus equivalent to one to two week’s wages.
  • Things like experience, how long a nanny has been with the family, geographical location and what a family can truly afford can influence how much a bonus is.
  • This amount typically increases the longer a nanny has been with a family, with long-term nannies receiving as much as what is equivalent to one month’s wages.
  • For nannies who are new to a family, calculating one day’s pay for each month of employment is a standard approach.
  • While parents and nannies may be familiar with the idea of yearend bonuses, many are not aware that the annual bonus counts as taxable income.

For nannies, bonuses do matter, as they indicate the nanny has successfully met or exceeded your expectations and they show appreciation for the commitment and investment the nanny has made to the family throughout the year and builds positive feelings towards the relationship.
